It's a tough, bulbous life.

The life of a bulb is a tough one.  For the bulk of the year, the plant lives underground and dormant, enduring until it's time to shine.  These Iris just get themselves up and going and Sunday's snow put the brakes on. Nonetheless, winter will end and more and more bulbs and flowers will take advantage of warming spring to make their entry into life above ground. 

Look at this series of three photos: successive close-ups of the Crocus I wrote about here.  Quite a difference in the landscape.
